Head coach: Joseph Vespo, second season
2015-16 record: 7-11 (5-9 Sunrise, fifth)
Returning letter winners (starters): Five (three)
Top players: QB/LB Katy Orellana (Sr.), WR/LB Avery Rayos (Sr.), RB/S Haley Makue-Vasconcellos (Sr.)
Outlook: Five letter winners return for the Roadrunners, who were part of a four-way tie for fourth place in the Sunrise League last year after winning five of their final seven games, but missed out on the playoffs due to a tiebreaker.
“After barely missing out on the playoffs, Tech comes into the season ready to compete for a league and state title,” Vespo said. “Once again, we will lean on our defense to make stops. I have no doubt we can compete with anyone in the league.
“I scheduled eight games in three weeks, five of which are against (Class) 4A competition to get us ready for conference play when we return from Christmas break.”
